General Mach Discussion / Mach3 Startup- Reboots PC- help?
« on: November 29, 2007, 08:58:00 PM »
Hi all, I'm new to the forum here. 
I have a Smithy CB1239XL combo machine with steppers on it.
I used to run Mach2 and it worked great.  I bought my steppers and drives too small and didn't get the position sensors, so sometimes it would miss a step and get out of alignment.
So I bought new Bigger Steppers and drives and now have Mach3 loaded on the PC.

My problem is when I double click the icon to start Mach3turn, it gives a startup picture and then the monitor go black, you can hear a relay clicking like it's changeing the resolution or something, then a get a brief flash of a blue screen with some text on it, then the machine reboots.

The machine is an AMD K5? 450 with 512M ram.  I've tried cutting out everything I can think of.  Also changed the display acceleration settings, put in a different video card, but no change.
Am I missing something basic here?

I have Mach3 loaded on this PC, Dell 3Ghz with 1.5G RAM... and it works fine.

Thoughts, suggestions?
